  1. I think what made it difficult for people to get, and still makes it difficult for people to get, is the theatrical nature of the work and the fact that, my music doesn’t exist without the performance-art element.
  2. I love being able to be political without any political affiliation.
  3. There really is no difference between the bully and the victim.
  4. Unless I am both capable of and willing to reopen the wound every time I write a song, if I choose to not look inside myself to write music, I’m really not worth being called an artist at all.
  5. My concerts are about me being very private in public, but I’m very protective.
  6. My records are borderline dance records. They’ve got a real electro-rock heart and soul, and the vibe of the sentiment is pop, but there’s a lot of people that were like, ‘This is a dance record.’
  7. I never wanted to look pretty on stage and sing about something we’ve all heard about before.
  8. I allow myself to fail. I allow myself to break. I’m not afraid of my flaws.
  9. I’m not as goal obsessed as I am process obsessed.
  10. I went to see ‘Phantom of the Opera’ with my grandma and my mom when I was very little. The stage, the voice, the music… Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has been a massive inspiration to me for some time — the storytelling, that deliciously somber undertone in his music.
  11. I like black because it is a vacant space.
  12. I’m perpetually lonely.
  13. Well, in order for me to be successful… In order to be a great artist — musician, actor, painter, whatever — you must be able to be private in public at all times.
  14. I hope that what you take away from my album is not just the music — which I did want to be fun, and I did want it to be about individuality, but please also take away from it that there’s no dream that’s too big.
  15. It’s honestly true that money means nothing to me.
  16. My audience went, ‘Wait, why is she singing jazz? What’s going on?’ And then they went, ‘Oh, because she can. Because she loves it.’ And jazz, a music invented by the African-American community, is the greatest art form, I believe, to have ever come out of this country.
  17. I am a walking piece of art every day, with my dreams and my ambitions forward at all times in an effort to inspire my fans to lead their life in that way.
  18. I don’t think I could live without hair, makeup and styling, let alone be the performer I am. I am a glamour girl through and through. I believe in the glamorous life and I live one.
  19. My mother always wanted to give back.
  20. When you’re around me and really see that all I do is live and breathe for my work, it’s not strange, it’s just Gaga.
